Scenarios based on geographic information systems
« on: March 17, 2012, 04:54:56 am »

Hi,

first of all: I'm deeply impressed... I had set up a hang gliding flight simulator with JSBSim an FlightGear, though heavily suffering from the latter's poor graphics. Therefore I eagerly awaited Outerra. It's exactly what I need :-)!

I would like to create scenarios based on real geographic data. The road tool of course allows to set points according to lat/long values, however it is very tedious to actually create a road that way. How about a feature to include kml/kmz data or semi-automatic creation of content based on digital maps (e.g. Open Street Map or OSGeo)? I guess other flight simmers would like to do such stuff as well.

Cheers and keep going!
